Captivator is an American-European hybrid that produces large, sweet, pinkish-red fruit. Plants are resistant to mildew.
Pixwell: Sold most often and is very productive and hardy, but the fruit is of only fair quality. Fruit is best if harvested slightly underripe. Plants are mildew-resistant.
Poorman: Red-fruited, large, and flavorful. It ripens fruit over a long season and is the best variety of the American types for the home gardens since it is vigorous and has fewer and smaller thorns than most varieties. It is resistant to powdery mildew.
Several European varieties are available from specialty nurseries. The fruit of the European types usually is larger and better flavored; however, the varieties without resistance to powdery mildew can be devastated by the strains of the fungus found in the United States.
Hinnonmaki Red: Has a tart skin but sweet, aromatic flesh. Plants are moderately vigorous and partially resistant to mildew.
Invicta: Has large, pale-green fruit and less flavor than most European types. Plants are large and have many spines. Has good resistance to powdery mildew.
